Subject: Berkeley/Oakland circa 1955E. Bay Terminal that's what it was called at that time
Shot of Solano/Alameda tunnel F train emerging
NOW car tunnel. Shattuck Avenue DOWNTOWN Berkeley
Hotel Shattuck seen in background. Either last streetcar run or historic run on Claremont Ave
around Russell St Berkeley. This would have been the E Claremont Key train Line. Also noted 40th St. and Piedmont Ave (Longs Drugs in the background). This was the C Piedmont Key Train line. Looking at the cars in this film the newest
I could spot was a 55 Chevy. All the taxis were of early 50's vintage mostly Plymouths in those days. I would date the film as shot in 1955-56 not
late 50's. There were some Key System MACK buses
that were'nt in service in the late 50's.
